This was delicious. I did reduce the garlic. We love garlic but I figured our garlic was too potent to add this much and not all our guests would appreciate it. I will be making this again

This is the best Tzatziki recipe I've ever tried! Made it to go with Grilled Greek Chicken Breasts from this recipe - http://greek.food.com/recipe/grilled-greek-chicken-breasts-288061
Both recipes were fabulous, fast and easy. I absolutely loved the inclusion of red wine vinegar in this recipe. I'll be making this again. Thanks!

This is a great recipe, and one perfect for gyros. It's easy, and everything can be done 'to taste.' To get all the water out of the cucumbers I grate them on a cheese grater and then squeeze them mercilessly in an old potato ricer. :) This also works well for getting the liquid out of thawed spinach etc., in other recipes where the water is a problem.

Absolutely fabulous, Sue! Draining the cucumbers is key to having a nice thick result! I used Greek yogurt, and about 3 tablespoons of fresh mint (in place of the dried). We served this over Shaye33's gyro meat in pitas, with sliced red onion, lettuce and tomatoes....MMMMM! Thanks Sue! :)

YUM! Served as an accompaniment to evelyn/athens' Dolmathes and also made some artichoke hearts stuffed with fresh mozz, spinach and goat cheese...and of course kalamatas, pitas, and feta. Really terrific flavor in this. I did not measure my herbs, just threw in a bunch of both dill AND mint. We loved this

This tzatziki sauce is very authentic. We halved the recipe, reducing the garlic cloves to 2, to accompany the Grilled Greek Chicken (#288061) and still had sauce leftover. Thanks for posting.

Excellent! I made it with Dill and will try with mint next time. Used half Fage 2% greek yogurt (amazing stuff) and half sour cream. I could eat it by the spoonful, thanks!

I picked this recipe for Naan Chicken Pizza


Wow did I love this! The flavor is amazing.

I chose to make this the day before to let the flavors blend.

Wonderful. Used garlic from a jar this time, next time will use the garlic salt or powder as it was a little garlic-off. The rest was great and easy. I should 1/2 it next time, this made a lot! Thanks.

A very nice tzatziki recipe! English cucumbers were took expensive at the grocery store so I used regular cukes, peeling and seeding them first. I used chopped fresh dill weed and white wine vinegar as that's what I grabbed! Using a cheesecloth is a great idea for wringing out the last of the cucumber juice.
